The Bible Series: Drawing Close To God: Genesis 1

When God Speaks Into Your Life 

Genesis 1:1 New King James Version (NKJV)

The History of Creation

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

New King James Version (NKJV)

This year, 2019 is coming into a CLOSE ! God has dealt with me that as we close this year He wants us to focus on HIM and begin with Him… Sometimes when we look at beginnings we assume that it has to be with money, cars, clothes, and fame.. but the BIBLE says in The Message,

Proverbs 20:21 The Message (MSG)

The Very Steps We Take

21 A bonanza at the beginning
    is no guarantee of blessing at the end.

So you may not be going into 2020 with a BMW or having your face in New York Times Square but keep going with GOD. Because even David and Joseph  had to start somewhere…. And DAVID was in waiting for decades.  


Genesis 1:1 tells us  GOD created the heavens and the earth. As we draw close to GOD we see that we must KNOW who He is (Proverbs 9:10). As you begin to develop a relationship with God you have to acknowledge and reverence Him so that you may get prayer and life results.

But How Does This Draw Me Close To Him

Well lets look at these seven points:

  • Point 1: When God speaks into your life according to Genesis 1:2, sometimes its when we are formless and empty. Sometimes it’s when there is darkness from a bad relationship or at a time where WE need a supernatural deliverance. The Bible says in Mark,

Mark 2:17 English Standard Version (ESV)

17 And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

And He says in Matthew,

Matthew 21:31 English Standard Version (ESV)

31 Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes go into the kingdom of God before you.

English Standard Version (ESV)

  • Point 2: Because of this we know that because HE came to you while you were yet in sin, in darkness… God is showing that HE sees GOOD in you according to Genesis 1:3-5.

A lot of times when it comes to ministry, a relationship with God, and big time names we think that those people are the only ones who can talk to God… but there are some anonymous, nameless, and unknown hero’s in the BIBLE. There are even some books in The Bible that tells us that the Author is Unknown (See the NLT STUDY BIBLE). So we have to understand that our relationship with GOD and if we are going to inherit the Kingdom of God is based on US . Faith without works is dead.

  • Point 3: Genesis 1:10 shows us that man cannot dictate WHO or WHEN God calls. The Bible says in Proverbs 8,

Proverbs 8:17 English Standard Version (ESV)

17 I love those who love me,
    and those who seek me diligently find me.

…. This shows me that whoever LOVES God will receive what He has for them… but you have to focus on HIM and rely on HIM as he takes you through the process of being transformed and renewed in God.

  • Point 4 : Genesis 1:6-11 NLT discusses SPACE. When you begin to draw closer to GOD he will begin to create SPACE. In your life, he will purge out all those who are wicked and evil. He is going to teach you BOUNDARIES and HEALTHY CHRIST LIKE GOALS as you begin to move forward in this life. We are living in the last days … God does not want you living with the spirit of fear but in THE FEAR OF GOD (PROVEBRS 9:10).
  • Point 5:Genesis 1:7 When GOD is forming and making you into who HE has called you to be He is going to speak over you prophetically and sing over you. WHAT GOD has spoken over you MUST come to pass…it has to. It MUST. And whether they receive it or not they will know that a prophet has been among them.

Ezekiel 2:5 New Living Translation (NLT)

And whether they listen or refuse to listen—for remember, they are rebels—at least they will know they have had a prophet among them.

New Living Translation (NLT)

  • Point 6: Genesis 1:9-12 says “the land produced vegetation.”  When God produces something it is formed for a purpose. As you draw close to God, He is going to begin to form you into your purpose. Whether it is to be a TEACHER to be a intercessor for children… Whether it is to be a Gym Teacher to be a GOD sent intercessor for children against bullying. Or whether it is to be a  Counselor to lead children to CHRIST and to pray… Whatever your purpose is on this earth… when YOU draw close to God his purpose in you MUST be fulfilled and revealed.
  • Point 7: Throughout Genesis 1 one of the secrets or mysteries is that we have to learn how to WAIT. Not to long ago God told me, “It is better to wait than for it not to happen at all.”  During the process and with God you have to wait and allow God to finish His GOOD work in YOU, He is going to perfect that which concerns you according to The WORD OF GOD.

Psalm 138:8 King James Version (KJV)

The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

King James Version (KJV)


So today as the LORD moves in your life and you begin to move on into the next year… Be focused on GOD and be determined to read the entire BIBLE, the back of the BIBLE has yearly BIBLE study plans… Genesis 1 will draw you closer to GOD and push you into the secret place so that GOD will form your purpose.
